    Default 14 oz can stove

    I was gathering recycling up today and found that a small can of olives fits perfectly in a 14oz easy open can, so I figured I'd try to make a stove out of it and on the first burn it seems to work well. Gotta see if I can find some sheet metal screws that are long enough to use for pot stand pegs

    Nice start...have you found the screws for pot supports to complete the project? :-)

    I did and now I can't remember what size sheet metal screws I used. The nice thing about screws for pot supports and legs is that I can adjust them easy for better balance.

    I'm going to fiddle with more of these this fall. The first one requires use of a pocket bellows to get hot enough to boil water.

    For legs, see if limiting yourself to 3 makes balancing a lot easier, if not automatic.
